Quote from: Indy Pete on March 04, 2008, 04:29:53 PMHi SavageInOzThe Judge Dredd (JD) universe is a great setting, and sure there is plenty of material out there to flesh your game out with.I dunno though: if your players are Judges and they have read the comics, then IMO they will be inclined to pull out their Lawgivers (big iron) and blow perps (sinners) away. JD isn't ever about helping people, or saving a citi-block (Town): JD is more about sending peps to the iso-cubes. The Judges aren't even on the same side as the perps: as I remember it Judges enter the academy really young, and a me vs them mentality is hammered into the psyche of a Judge, so it's not like you can even bring a Relationship with a perp into play.
Quote from: Indy Pete on March 04, 2008, 04:29:53 PMIMO, this needs work: the Sin (Crime) progression is one of the main DitV hooks upon which a lot hangs. Why does Pride lead to Crime? The connection isn't obvious there, at least to me. The comics have always been satirical in tone anyways, so how about considering a totally satirical Crime progression? As I remember it, most citizens (perps) in MC1 have nothing to do so that is what leads to them breaking the law. So how about this for a Crime progression? (Totally off the top of my head as you'll see.)Boredom (manifests as looking for something to do); leads to...Actually Doing Something (manifests as getting a job (!) or joining a stamp-collecting club); leads to...Thinking You Are Worth Something (manifests as expecting more than is your lot; jaywalking); leads to...Taking What Is Deemed Yours (manifests as expecting to be paid for working; stealing; getting yet another job); leads to...Block War!No logical progression on that last one there This is Judge Dredd after all. You may start out slipping your hovo-socks into your neighbours lanudry-bot-basket in the morning, but come lunchtime you'll be shoving a splat-gun up their jacksies.
